"Horatius", from Lays of Ancient Rome


Published June 9, 2006


You've seen literary references to Horatius at the Bridge and Volaterrae and "Lars Porsena of Clusium, to the Nine Gods he swore", but they don't make folks read that in school anymore. So why not read it for yourself? This is fun stuff!

The idea behind Lays of Ancient Rome was to recreate (for fun and education) the sort of pre-classical ballad poetry that we know the republican Romans had. Whether or not it's anything like that, it's certainly good historical fiction and good rousing poetry.
